Yes, Lynne remembered to pick up her nephew and take him home last week…but I’m pretty sure somewhere along the line, most parents (or aunts…or grandparents) have forgotten to pick up a young charge. Who did you forget along the way – or did you get left or lost for a time when you were a kid? Tell us your story! And we’ll have tweets, pins and fun stories to bid April a fond farewell!!

Wednesday, April 29, 2015"Is It My Fault?" Host(s): Lynne Ford
Listen Now Number of listens: 0 Download File Number of downloads: 0

Globally, one in three women has been beaten, coerced into sex, or otherwise abused. In the US alone, a woman is assaulted every nine seconds. Even worse, these statistics don't begin to reveal the darkness and grief experienced by the women themselves. Domestic violence causes physical, psychological, emotional, and spiritual pain. Its victims need help, hope, and healing Justin Holcomb traces the path from devastation to redemption and how God's grace can heal the deepest wounds and questions like Is it My Fault? (Moody, ISBN# 978-0-8024-1024-5). A difficult but necessary Mid-Morning conversation, Justin's words are for not just victims, but family, friends and pastors as well.

While the role of women in ministry can be a bit of a debate among some, the truth is, women have served the Body of Christ and the Kingdom of God throughout the course of humanity. God used women for specific purposes and assignments, and we read about them in the pages of Scripture and in the books of even more recent history. Carol McLeod encourages women to understand that God calls each of us out of our insecurities, past our place of pain and into a place of ministry. Regardless of how flawed or floundering you feel your life is, don’t miss her conversation with Lynne and her desire to help you see the purpose and plans God has for you!

The old ways of having “the talk” with your kids just won’t cut it anymore. The number one place today’s young people go to for answers about sex is Google.

These words were actually spoken aloud to a minister, following his sermon on Sunday morning: “Let me tell you what you missed in your sermon.” While most of us wouldn’t dream of saying such things out loud to our pastor, most of us also probably don’t think of speaking life and encouragement into him either! We’ll spend the hour appreciating our pastors this week! Tell us what you love about your minister or something from a sermon that has stayed with you and challenged you to live in deeper faith!

Navigating the world of adulthood while single can sometimes feel like a curse.

Our friend Michelle Watson has lived a full and beautiful single life, and she brings her perspective to Mid-Morning. From grieving the hard days to celebrating God's every day goodness, she'll offer helpful thoughts for adult singles!
